Ali’s July 2019 Monthly Wrap-Up

Linking up with Monthly Wrap-Up Round Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

Happy August everyone!! July was a super busy month for us – loads of paperwork! As some of you might recall, my oldest graduated from high school in May. This felt like an accomplishment for him and me (since I homeschooled him all the way through). So in July we got him registered for his first semester of college and did a tour of the university he’ll be transferring to in a year. Oh, and did I mention that college comes with LOADS of paperwork already?!?

I also did a lot of prep work preparing for going back to school for my other two kids (sophmore and 7th grade). Oh, and I also have class once a week where a couple other kids come in and school with us. My 10th grader is starting to learn Japanese this year and my 7th grader, German. Both of those are completely new to me, so it’ll be a challenge! Thus far, I’ve only studied Latin based languages: Latin, English, Spanish, Italian, and French. And, I have not by any means mastered these. Heck, I haven’t even mastered English! I got excited today at the store when I heard a lady talking to her daughter in Spanish and understood her when she told her to pick out a backpack!

For the month of July I participated in several readathons. I think I did okay, not awesome and not completely terrible on the whole.

For #janeaustenjuly, Here’s the TBR I had ~

I finished all of these with the exception of Lady Susan.

I finished all of these! And I also added ~

I haven’t finished my reread of Emma yet, but I did get a good chunk of it read.

For #Medievalathon I veered a lot from my original TBR, but here’s what I still accomplished ~

Fight for Throne: Queen of Shadows
Thick Paperback: Villette
Dragon on Cover: Carrie and the Dastardly Dragons
Red Dust Jacket: Red Rising
Assassins: Heir of Fire

I earned almost all of my armour and a nice set of daggers!

For #TropeAThon I finished 2 books  ~

I accomplished getting my TBR posted, Blue on the Cover, Cover Love, Enemies to Lovers and Recommended to You. That’s 5 out of 9.

Other books I finished ~

I finished a total of 18 books this month. That’s definitely a good reading month. I’m sure things will start slowing down drastically as we get started with the new school year. That’s 114/160 for my Goodreads challenge. I’m 21 books ahead of schedule.

How was your July???

Happy Reading,

    • It is complicated! Trying to keep Hiragana and Katakana straight is a bit of work. Good luck with all the application stuff. While my son is already enrolled in the local community college, we’re still dealing with the paperwork since he’ll be transferring next year to a bigger university.

  2. Wow, looks like you had a great reading month! Love all the Jane Austen 😍Seeing the movie poster for the 2005 version makes me want to watch it again right now (one of my all time faves). Hope August continues to be a great reading month for you!


    • I don’t know how I manage my time either! That’s the one thing I wish I had a better game plan for, but things are constantly changing around here, so I can’t stick to any schedule for too long. Thanks!! Hope you’re having a great weekend, too!
